, governor cuomo, we met with eric cantor, who by the way, kept his word throughout this, and the bill was drawn. we were promised that it would come up yet. we provided every penny of documentation, and the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us a courtesy of a notice, told as ann -- -- so there's some dysfunction in the leadership, the speaker for some reason is taking it out on new york, long island and new jersey, speaker boehner is the one. he walked off the floor, refused to tell us why, refused to give under the circumstances any indication of warning whatsoever, and eric cantor met with us throughout the week, he devised the strategy how to bring it to the floor to make it acceptable to let the republicans who wanted to vote against parts of the bill, they could do that, but the bill was going to pass. the bottom line is here. the republican speaker walked off the floor without allows the vote. i'm just saying these people have no problem finding new york, these republicans, when they're trying to raise money. they raised millions in n
right tea party members, republicans breaking ranks with their house majority leader eric cantor to vote for a plan, 85 house republicans voted for the deal, 151 republicans voted against the deal, including cantor, and that didn't sit well with the tea party. amy kremer tweeted this "i'm extremely disgusted with what happened in the house tonight. there will be consequences." and if you scan any of the big national paper this is morning, the headline might be that yes a deal was reached but how we got there is also making news. "the los angeles times" proclaimed "fiscal cliff plan clears house with gop divided." "the new york post" called it "leap of faith, gop breaks ranks to pass bill." jeff landry was on cnn's "early start" and acknowledged the party tension. >> we have to have a fight to determine what republicans actually stand for now. i think that what you saw november 6th was the fact that the republican establishment can't figure out what they stand for. >> over the next two months we could see a lot more political tension, that's for sure. the deal still has not addressed the
wolffe nbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com. ron, we noticed eric cantor voted against the speaker's deal with the president. are there republicans who want to see him oust mr. boehner from the speaker's chair as well? >> well, martin, i always like to save some breaking news for you when i come on. >> i'm grateful to you for that. >> i have huge breaking news tonight. there are serious rumors that at the conference tonight at 5:00 john boehner will announce that he's resigning as speaker of the house. there are multiple senior sources that i have talked to tonight that have said that this is going to happen. >> ron, i wouldn't wish to question your sanity, but i find that very hard to believe. >> i know. listen, i find it hard to believe. i was put at a one in four chance today we'd be able to kick him out today. there are a serious group of members thinking about it. >> do they have someone as an alternative in mind. >> eric cantor is probably the one. >> is this a coup? >> i don't have any evidence. >> you have to put evidence forward. you put forth a rumor. sub shan
. instead majority leader eric cantor said he won't support the measure. and others left open the possibility of changing the bill. and sending it back to the senate. so how will the twists and turns play out? we turn to newshour regular todd zwillich. he's washington correspondent for "the takeaway" on public radio international, and was there for the senate vote until nearly dawn today. todd, you've probably slept at the capital last night. most of the republicans in the senate voted for this bill. what is the problem that the house republicans have with it? >> well, the house is a fundamentally different place than the senate, judy. remember, this is not the first time we've seen this dynamic. back in february there was the debate over that very payroll tax holiday that is expiring... that has expired frankly at midnight. you got 89 or 90 votes in the senate for that. that deal fell apart in the house. the highway bill got 74 bipartisan votes in the senate. that fell apart. they're two different places. there had been tacit assurances or at least pronouncements from the hou
had from both the speaker and the majority leader eric cantor are iron clad. i think we're going to proceed. and i think that this recognizes the heartache and misery that both of our states, the region have suffered as a -- it has been as the governor emphasized, governor christie and in his press conference within the last hour or two, it has been over 66 days. i think it is about time congress responded. i'm pleased that the speaker and the majority leader have listened to our pleas. >> why not have voted on the senate bill and have it all done today? >> that was our hope, but, you know, it will happen. that's the bottom line. and it will happen at the amount that we think is required to meet the legitimate needs of the people of new jersey, new york and points north. >> we asked congressman king, the speaker tell you the reason why he abruptly yanked this from the calendar? >> as peter probably said, he alluded to the fact that there was so much going on, but did not give a specific reason. you might want to ask him that. for us, it is about getting critical aid to people who
no sign they were ready to call a vote on the senate bill. instead majority leader eric cantor said he won't support the measure. and others left open the possibility of changing the bill. and sending it back to the senate. >> woodruff: the story at this hour still unfolding at the house but all signs are pointing to a vote on the senate compromise later tonight. we get an update now froms in regular todd zwillich. he's washington correspondent for the take-away, public radio international. he was there for the senate vote til nearly da today. so, todd, it looks like another long night for you and the other members of the press, members of the house, of the congress. where does everything stand right now? >> well, judy, house republicans met about an hour, hour-and-a-half ago. they just had been on the house floor. now that vote was not notable except it was a whip session. here's what house republican leaders have told their rank-and-file. we have two choices for you. choice one is to amend this bill. they've got a package ready to go of spending cuts. 's about $330 billion over ten years
worried me, gave me pause about 2013, as i trust it did for you. even yesterday when i heard that eric cantor was going to try to scuttle a hard-fought deal that was overwhelmingly approved in the senate, it gave me again pause about what could happen this morning. i was prepared for a down 300, 400. but cantor, who momentarily was a sure candidate for the wall of shame if he kept up that stuff, he ultimately backed down and we got a deal that everyone dislikes, which is the essence of what it means to rise above politics. you're supposed to dislike it, for heaven's sakes, it's a compromise. right now about the pending battle over the debt ceiling other than the fact that the buyers weren't too scared of the upcoming big bad debt fight today. what makes me not so concerned? i know there are plenty of other people who will wouldorry about the debt ceiling. i don't have to do it. let them worry about it i worry about the things very few people are worried about. i acknowledge i'm fretting over, problems that are thought about in advance by everybody, they have a tendency to be resolved.
notice how eric cantor, the house majority leader voted on the fiscal cliff deal last night. he voted against it. some have interpreted that to be premonition, an indication perhaps there will be some sort of a challenge to the speakership of john boehner. however we have heard nobody speak publicly, nobody speak on the record in that regard. keep in mind if his speakership were to be challenged would require a vote not just of the republican conference but the entire house of representatives. jenna: big question whether or not a change in leadership would elicit different results that is conversation yet to be had in the coming weeks. >> so you try. jenna: doug, thank you very much. jon: so the white house and congress knew of the self-imposed deadline for more than 17 months and they still managed to blow past it. finally approving a tax deal last night that doesn't seriously address the spending cuts or the nation's ballooning deficit. so who wins and who loses with this deal? talk about it with jonah gold perg, editor-at-large at "the national review" and a fox news contributor. b
to me. and it says, you know, exactly -- >> even though eric cantor was right there probably helping him out? >> but that's the thing is he had eric cantor there, which should have given him the cover. now, you know, at some point john boehner has to make a decision, which is do i let these people dictate what type of legislation we're going to put to this body, or will i get rid of this informal role that anything i let come to a vote has to have the majority of the majority, which means that a majority of republicans have to vote on the bill for it to pass. because that's really the only resolution to this deal is can he -- will he pass a deal that will have a lot of democratic support in the house? >> and is, as i look at next week and the fiscal cliff presumably happening, going over it, john boehner is supposed to be re-elected speaker on next thursday. >> on the 3rd, yeah. >> is that going to change everything and he's going to say, to hell with this right-wing tail wagging my dog, i don't need you guys anymore? >> no, because the house isn't the only theater of this. there's the s
eric cantor was with him all along, still is, and they're pointing the finger of blame at speaker john boehner, openly encouraging the idea that there's a rift between the two. >> there's a squabble, obviously, between speaker boehner and leader cantor, they voted separately on the fiscal cliff. since cantor had taken a lead role here some have speculated that boehner wasn't as friendly to it as he might have otherwise been. >> reporter: cantor's office tells me that the two are in communication and that cantor support the speaker boehner. the two are scheduled to meet with the new york and new jersey delegations to discuss sandy aid in less than an hour, megyn. >> megyn: shannon, thank you. >> we're going to hit every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure that this does not happen again. because these are folks that i send into the field. we understand that there are dangers involved, but you know, when he read the report and it confirms
boehner voted yes, his number two majority leader eric cantor voted no and there will be another fiscal fight over the next two months, that's when military cuts are due. they kicked them down the road. that battle will now be joined over the next 60 days and we'll see what we get in the end after that. arthel: there is a limit on how many ad advil you can take in one day. bill: then you have to shift to ae alieve. we talked about military cuts and cuts to medicare, none of that was addressed in the drama we just watched unfold, none of it. arthel: no. let's get to this now the medical scare for america's top diplomat, secretary of state hillary clinton remains in a new york hospital where she is being treated with blood thinners for a blood clot lodged between her skull and her brain. molly henneberg live in washington with more. >> reporter: doctors say secretary clinton is making excellent progress, is in good spirits and should make a full recovery. she remains in new york presbyterian hospital as doctors monitor that brain clos. the the blood thinners should resolve it. clinton did
, the gentleman is recognized. >> mr. speaker, i ask that the speaker reconsider. i want to thank eric cantor who has worked tirelessly throughout these many days, right up until the last couple of minuteses. today families lack housing, businesses are in shambles and municipalities have been decimated. mr. smith: 346,000 housing units were damaged or destroyed in new jersey, with 22,000 units today uninhabitble. approximately 100,000 new storm-related unemployment claims have been filed in new jersey. 100,000. over 235,000 people have already registered with fema for individual assistance. this is a dire crisis. people are hurting. i talk to people in my district who have been malaffected and they're looking to offer help and they're looking for timely help. we need to pass this. please, mr. speaker, reconsider. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlelady from new york seek recognition? without objection, the gentlelady is recognized. >> mr. speaker, i truly feel betrayed this evening. i left this floor with an understanding that this bill was going to be brought to the floor.
